San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
This weekend, Equity Based Services, Inc., Stephen Kaplan, and Troy Downing supported the Barnes Tennis Center's Annual Fundraiser by sponsoring two tables at their Gala Dinner and offering a "Fighter Pilot for a Day" package for the live auction during the event. EBS, Kaplan and Downing helped raise a substantial amount for this worthy cause.
The Barnes Tennis Center's Youth Tennis Program gives young people an afterschool outlet where they can spend their time constructively in an educational and esteem building environment. The Barnes program provides San Diego Area youth the opportunity to play tennis at their neighborhood schools. After School Tennis provides a safe haven for hundreds of youngsters who are not otherwise supervised after school. Through tennis the children are learning the success skills which will give them the confidence and self-esteem needed to confront the negative influences so often found on the streets where they live.
Several times a year, the children travel to the Barnes Tennis Center to participate in special tennis events. This is often their first exposure to a "real" tennis court. Other programs include recreational opportunities, local and national competitive events, educational seminars, kids helping kids projects, and partnership programs with local school districts and youth organizations. Youth Tennis San Diego (YTSD) also supports wheelchair and special populations by providing free court usage.
"This is a great community service, and a constructive outlet for our children," states Kaplan.
